I think you're better off comparing a Bravo V2 (or perhaps an Indeed G3) and a Vali.

Why be incredulous?

 

People A/B the different tiers of schiit gear all the time.  I want to know which of my two stacks will get it's matching tube brother first/at all.

+1   Hope it's not too unrealistic.  I've been waiting for one ever since I got the Bifrfost.

My current stack of Schiit.

 

I've been listening to it now for a few days and I must say that I'm really impressed by this combo. Easy going, like my "speaker-system" so a real good match to the "sound" I like (relaxed and laid-back)

Sweet setup sir!
I got my Modi today. Hooked it up to my Asgard 2.
And what a difference that was :P
The Asus Xonar stx card i had is now going into storage.
This little dac is a huge improvement.

I am very very happy with my Schiit! biggrin.gif

Nice looking stack.  I'm expecting my Bifrost back today and can't wait to put my stack back together.  F5 F5 F5 F5 F5 :biggrin: 

 

Just arrived!  :L3000:

Congrats on your Modi!!

 

I found out that this Schiit works real well with stuff from Norway, my electronic are from Norway (Electrocompaniet) and they combine real well with my Gungnir DAC :bigsmile_face:

If you like relaxed and laid back... I would HIGHLY recommend the HD650 with the Mjolnir and your Gungnir :redface:

Question for those who really know there Schiit. I have BF, lyr, and A2. Can I use the lyr pre amp outs to daisy chain the A2? I use the lyr most of the time but need the a2 occasionally and don't want to dig behind the desk to change out the cables. 

 

thanks...

i can't answer your question, but i bet you could answer mine, since you still have the A2, how do it and the lyr compare head to head sonically ?

You can use the Lyr pre-amp outs to the A2, but if you do, the Lyr must be on since the pre-amp outs go through the tubes. Also, another side-effect, you'll be able to control the volume from the Lyr and the A2.

It's pretty much what you would imagine. The A2 is nice clean and resolving...pretty neutral (borrows tech from mojo). The lyr will have better dynamics, more weight and punch on the bass and much more power.

Volume control will work on both?

thats correct, you'll be able to control the volume from both Lyr and the A2. the preamp outs on the Lyr are connected to the volume knob on the Lyr.
